Mailchimp and HTML Workshop for Activists

Saturday, August 26 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

On Saturday, August 26th from 10-3pm, SEA will be hosting a training session for activists and NGO volunteers interested in learning how to use MailChimp, HTML5, and facebook for boosting your online presence and ensuring your events and posts are noticed. This workshop is in a computer lab so you are not required to bring your own laptop, but you can if you would like.

The session will be an introduction to MailChimp, a powerful online email campaign application, and HTML5: the backbone for editing and customizing textual content online.

It is recommended for those interested in attending this workshop to sign up for a MailChimp account which is free and preview the application prior to attending the session.

There will be one main presenter and two assistants to help throughout the day.

Please bring lunch as we will take a half hour break and there are not many food facilities available.
